A Patient’s Guide To Total Knee Replacement

The knee is one of the strongest and most stable bones in the body. It is constantly used and supports much of our weight. Due to this, the knee is prone to damage.

The knee is a hinge joint, making it move in one direction. The articular cartilage connects the ends of the bones in the knee to help it move smoothly. In osteoarthritis, this cartilage is damaged.
